At each of Crossroads Fitness' four locations throughout the Wastach Front, members of all ages build strong, healthy bodies through a regimen of group classes, personal training, and extensive wellness evaluations and health assessments.

Pit Elevated's coaches specialize in mixed martial arts training. Coach Jason Mertlich's roster of students includes UFC fighters such as Court McGee and Steven Siler, to name just a few, and The Pit is also the home gym of professional fighters like Steven Siler and Rad Martinez. But despite all that, Coach Mertlich knows that MMA training isn't a fitness style that suits everyone, nor is it the only kind of workout a good fighter should pursue.
So instead of only sticking to one style of training, Pit Elevated offers a variety of classes that cater to exercisers of all ages and abilities. Trainers hold martial arts-free fitness sessions for kids ages 4 and up, and lead yoga and Pilates sessions to help hone flexible limbs and strong cores in aspiring fighters and noncombatants alike. They also teach a fair handful of martial arts and fitness fusion classes, such as the CrossPit MMA Fitness course, which combines essential technique training with heavy weight lifting, extended cardio, and striking work, but leaves out any contact sparring or dance fighting.

Cardio Barre Quarry Bend?s owners, Megan Cross and Shantel Reitz, guide individuals through Giorla?s workouts during classes that start as early as 6 a.m. and as late as 7:30 p.m.
